Ticket Price Free This event is now over

Sadly, the 2021 Wellington Folk Festival is cancelled due to Covid.

With the current status of Covid alert level restrictions, the very real possibility that those restrictions may continue into the festival period, and with the risk of change being imposed with little warning during the festival we feel there is simply too much risk in continuing with commitments to the 2021 Wellington Folk Festival.

Everyone who has already purchased tickets will be provided with a full refund. However, if you prefer, we can hold these tickets for the 2022 Festival.


The Wellington Folk Festival is normally held every Labour Weekend (including the fourth Monday in October) at Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre – a beautiful site owned by the Scouts at 562 Moores Valley Road, Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt, New Zealand. The location is a nature reserve, so please no pets!

The Festival gate is open from 3pm on the Friday, with the programme running over Friday evening, all day Saturday through to Sunday evening. You can come for the whole weekend, a full day and evening, a part day or just an evening.

Weekend passes entitle the holders to camp onsite and there are a limited number of bunks available for sale as well.
